Using PCC funding, Hartlepool Community Safety Partnership will commission a Voluntary and Community Sector organisation.
This is to deliver a targeted, street-based youth outreach service with the aim of reducing youth antisocial behaviour in Hartlepool.
The service will deliver a range of early intervention, diversionary and positive activities.
Activities will be centred on assertive street based youth work, engaging with young people who are involved in, or at risk of becoming involved in antisocial behaviour activity.
The service will be intelligence-led and delivered in a reactive manner.
It will provide short term interventions in antisocial behaviour hotspot locations identified by partnership information and analysis and reviewed at local multi agency meetings.
The service delivery organisation will sit on these multi agency meetings.
A Local Authority lead will be identified to coordinate the commissioned Targeted Youth Outreach Service.
The lead will report back to the OPCC on activity undertaken with PCC funding.
